Naked man approaches women

Police are warning women to be aware after a naked man approached two women, including a 16-year-old, in Hillsborough this week.

Senior Sergeant Hirone Waretini said the man drove up to the 16-year-old girl on Monday evening and asked for directions.

"He made an inappropriate suggestion then a witness scared him off," he said.

 "He then approached another female shortly after."

The man was driving a late model silver station wagon.

Waretini said the incident was concerning.

"Be aware of your personal safety, have a phone handy and if you see a vehicle following you have an escape plan - even if that means knocking on someone's door."
